“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was our absolute favourite stay of our NZ holiday. We didn't really do too many sights in Nelson as when we saw the magnificent view all we wanted to do was set up with a bottle of recently acquired Marlborough wine and kick back on the deck and take it in. Every little detail was considered - Nespresso machine, excellent wifi, apple TV movies, board games, magazines, binoculars, in room breakfast supplies, laundry, etc. etc. The apartment is a very well thought out design and totally private. Booking was easy through Trip Advisor with deposit paid ahead and balance on arrival. Thank you Mary And Peter for a wonderful stay.

“Delightful Property”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This very modern, spotlessly clean and well-equipped flat has an absolutely spectacular view of the sea and of boats coming in and out of the harbor. It is an easy walk to quay-side restaurants and a short drive to downtown Nelson. My wife and I spent 3 nights there and loved it. Mary is a most welcoming and helpful hostess.

“Fantastic Spot”

We spent four idyllic days at this wonderful spot - spacious and airy. The kitchen is well equipped and the furniture and bed so comfortable. The best part of our stay was enjoying the view, especially the comings and goings of boats in the harbour below .
In our month or travelling in New Zealand, arrow Rock is definitely a highlight.

“Will take your breath away”

Even though we knew the view from this apartment would be great (based on previous reviews), we were stunned by it when we arrived. It was magnificent; we couldn't take our eyes off it. We were fortunate enough to have 3 days in the apartment, all of which were brilliantly sunny, and it was simply blissful sitting on the balcony with a book and a cup of tea, basking and letting the expanse of sea before us and the warm Nelson sunshine soak into our souls. The apartment itself was beautifully presented, comfortable, and equipped with everything we needed and more. We didn't want to leave this place. We wanted to buy it and own it (maybe one day!). It was far and away the best place we stayed at over 25 days in the South Island. We felt so lucky to be there. It gave us joy. Thank you to the wonderful hostess who made it possible.

“This will surprise you!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Absolutely the best place we stayed the entire month in NZ. Located high on a hill overlooking the water, with a beautiful deck.. Mary has thought of everything to make your stay wonderful. From the fresh flowers from her garden to the plush bathrobes, even breakfast cereals, toast and fruit were a treat! No actual cooking hob...but who needs it when you are on vacation...Great restaurants nearby. Large bathroom and a laundry room which we loved since we had been travelling for 3 weeks. We stayed 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. First class accomodations! Wish we lived closer, a great place for a weekend getaway!

For us, 1st timers, a lil driveway drama..apologies to Mary & for those a little less agile the different levels of steps may be an issue - But what awaits is "Bliss".

Private, Perfectly presented, luxurious comfort..very very reluctant to share this little paradise & the views - Stunning!!

WOW, what a place!!! Far exceeded our expectations. You couldn't wish for more. What a treasure. One of the highlights of our trip to the south island. The restaurant across the road (Boat Shed Café) is also amazing. We had an awesome time in Nelson and loved coming home to this apartment. Also loved watching the seal playing with a fish from the deck! Thanks so much for sharing your special spot. See you again for my birthday in April!! I have instructed hubby to book!!
